Hey guys, I've recentley decided to try give vinyl a go, and if I like it my dad is going to give me his turntable (He doesn't remember the model exactley, but it's a Project one which he thinks he bought for around £200 about 9 years ago) and I want some good headphones to do it justice. Because of this, I really feel like investing in some really nice headphones. I'm not going to lie, my best pair of headphones I have at the moment are the Monster Beats Pro (Please don't hate me), I didn't buy them for a fashion statement, they don't leave the house! To be honest, I quite like their sound and for whenever I need closed backs when family are around, I use them and I shan't be replacing them any time soon. However, as the turntable shall be upstairs, I'll be able to get away with a second pair of headphones which I want to be open backed. I listen mostly to 90s Hip Hip and some reggae, so, although they don't have to be coloured as such, they do need to be able to convey a decent amount of bass weight, I don't mean as much as the Monsters, but they need to have good bass. The only other thing really is they can't be ridiculous money, I'm looking maybe around £500, possibly a bit more if I can be persuaded there is a significant jump. A last piece of information is my headphone amp is the YS-A1, a Beyerdynamic A1 copy (If I could afford the actual A1 I would have got that) and to be honest, it does sound bloody good. My uncle, a true hi-fi purist who knows what sounds good and has hated my Monsters, said that the amp sounded great, and helped balance them a lot. Infact, he even used his Beyerdynamic T1 'phones through them and they sounded amazing. Anyway, so if anyone has any suggestions for what headphones would be good for me, please do share!
